Those leaving the military will have more time to use free resources such as income tax help, non-medical counseling, spouse employment assistance and other resources via Military OneSource, thanks to a provision in the defense authorization bill signed into law Monday by President Trump.
Much of the information on MilitaryOneSource.mil is available to the general public, on topics ranging from relocation to finances to deployment. But there are additional resources available for free exclusively to active-duty, National Guard and Reserve members and their immediate family members, survivors of deceased service members, and certain others. Those resources now will be available to retiring or separating service members (and their immediate family members) for 365 days after they leave service, up from 180 days.
